That shifter base is mighty well done. Should look really nice in place.

I thought rum might be the drink of choice Tango but he expression free beer was on my mind.

Onward you drunken sailor! hahaha

Thanks David. My apologies for dragging this out so long though. Never meant to make a novel out of this thread.

Hmmm...but maybe at some point I can sell the movie rights.

Don't feel bad, I have had a crusty but runnable 55 Power Wagon since 2006 and it has just sat there 'seasoning' since I parked it. At least you are making progress!!

Curious why your Portland artwork has not shown up on the bus yet? Bumper?

Good Luck

I have discussed an all concrete "Art Car" with my buddy who runs the Art Car Museum. We decided the weight would be an "issue".

He is, however, hosting a "Rat Rod Xmas" special on December 9th. If you are in the area...it is NOT to be missed. Should be great fun.

I told him he will be forever known as "the guy who put the "X" back in Xmas.

Another week of waiting --- Spent all of last week on a sculpture project only because I am pretty much on hold on the bus until I get a couple of items back from being fabbed. The final work on the doghouse is being completed by a sheetmetal shop...and the bellcranks for my steering are being fabbed/machined by a car builder buddy. Oh yeah...and my maple dash is back at the woodworker to get the hole for the shifter cut out more cleanly than my gear (and woodworking skill) would allow.

I had hoped to at least make some serious progress on this new sculpture this week but now the weather is not cooperating. With nothing else to do for a few days, I guess I'll concentrate on organizing my sock drawer.

Sock drawer organization should always be a priority for those considering the bus life.

To roll...or fold??? Sort by type...or color??? Or both!!!??? And what to do with all my tropical themed, multicolored pair with parrots and monkeys and palm trees? There are serious issues to consider here.
